One of the most mysterious creatures of the planet up to the present day does not stop to amaze scientists and inspire artists to bright images in their works. The appearance of the octopus is always slightly confusing: everything in this animal is not obvious – it is not clear where the head is, where the limbs are, where the mouth and eyes are, besides, it can change its skin color depending on the circumstances or its surroundings.

In the author’s new stone sculpture, these metamorphoses became the basis for the lyrical image of a pair of Pacific octopuses merging tightly in an embrace. Some of whom are considered to be rare species socially active among their congeners. And the different gradations of red-brown with deep gray and blue shades in agate capture the rich and saturated colors of the deep sea dweller.
